Know where to get information in the event of a fire emergency
If you live in the Shire of Augusta Margaret River, you need a bushfire plan to keep your household safe and avoid making last minute decisions that could prove deadly. You also need to be aware of where to get information in the event of a fire emergency.The most accurate and up-to-date information will always be available through the State’s official website for emergency information: Emergency WA via emergency.wa.gov.au.
The website provides a near-realtime feed of incidents reported around the State and uses the Australian Warning System to display information about incidents.
There are three warning levels:
- Advice (Yellow): An incident has started. There is no immediate danger. Stay up to date in case the situation changes.
- Watch and Act (Orange): There is a heightened level of threat. Conditions are changing and you need to start taking action now to protect you and your family.
- Emergency Warning (Red): An Emergency Warning is the highest level of warning. You may be in danger and need to take action immediately. Any delay now puts your life at risk.
Bushfires are unpredictable and happen every year in WA. To survive a bushfire you must be prepared to make your own decisions. For more information about how to make a bushfire plan go to here.
